Have you ever imagined Telangana Chief Minister in Lord Krishna’s avatar..? Before you jump into conclusions let us clear why the Lord God is being paralleled with a politician at a state level. The cover page of a Telugu magazine which triggered a communal controversy wave is behind the talk.
Into details, ‘Manyam Manugada’, an Adivasi magazine, depicted KCR as Lord Krishna with Sudharshana chakra and shanka for the cover page of the October edition. Out of no ones surprise, the publisher and printer of the magazine happen to be a TRS MLA Rega Kantha Rao who decoded the cover photo after a wave of criticism from his own community.
According to him, the cover photo depicts CM KCR as the saviour of the Adivasis as the TRS Chief ignited many welfare programs and policies for uplifting tribal villages. The leader also runs a YouTube Channel with the same name, claiming to cover the development programs in tribal villages.
However, many of the Adivasis found fault with the cover photo lashing out for bringing political angle rather concentrating on the Adivasi culture and issues they have been facing.
